Do goats have to have grain? We try to do every thing natural on our farm, and a lot of their grains have animal by-products.
Hey Dave, nice to see you on here.As ksalvagno said, depends on what you are using them for. Pets and lawn mowers dont need any. Even high production milk goats dont need any if they are being feed dairy quality alfalfa (22%+ protein) and maintaining weight. The grain is just to keep em still while milking. A very active pack goat could really use some. The browsing they do on the trail is of tasty treats but lower protein / quality so, yep on them.
